September GAP newsletter

When most people make a contribution to the Luke Society, it’s usually a financial gift. And while those gifts are no doubt vitally important, it’s often not the first thing ministry directors mention when asked
what they appreciate most about being a Luke Society partner.

During the African Regional Conference last March in Senegal, I conducted video interviews with all of our directors. I recently went back through those and listened to several who talked specifically about the impact of the Global Allies in Prayer.

“Sometimes in the course of our work we get so caught up with what we are doing, and sometimes you even forget to pray for yourself,” said Kenya ministry director Dr. Tom Olewe. “Just knowing there’s a team of people — an army that is holding you before the presence of God — has made a lot of difference.”

This GAP newsletter is mailed out to about 700 households each month. Another 510 are on the e-mail list. Each prayer partner is appreciated by the ministry directors.

“My partnership with the Luke Society International throughout the world has been meaningful for my ministry, especially through prayers,” said ministry director Rebecca Wasswa, a nurse in Uganda. “I’ve seen prayers working through my ministry. Some of the challenges have been addressed.”

Your prayers carry a deep meaning to the more than 40 ministry directors.

“I would like to thank God for using them,” Wasswa said. “I would thank them for their love, because if it’s not love, you can’t really contribute to ministries. Through their contribution, we have been able to reach so many people in the community and to touch the lives of many people in Jesus’ name.”
